Worst Lyrics..

Postby wetknee » Fri 10 Apr, 2009 1:19 pm

Do we have one of these yet?

After reading in the Eminem thread, ZX saying about 50 Cents verse in Crack a Bottle..and I was listening to the Jezoc tapes yesterday with the bits about Carter USM and their shocking lyrics. I thought it was time to see what lyrics you all think are shit :)

One thats always grated on me is by Pete Doherty(or Babyshambles at least)..im usually a big fan of his but this line is just so poor, it really is the sort of thing people write when they're in their early teens, its something like..

"there's a message I have learnt, if you play with fire..you will get burnt"

Its just so shite in a bucket, and the delivery of the line in the song is shit too. I think its What Katy Did Next, the song title.

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse.

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And the tears stream, down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face and I...


And the tears stream, down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I...


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.

I do like the song as it has a nice feel to it, but they are some awful lyrics.

Linkin Park would be up there with my all time favourite bands, but some of their lyrics are really poor too.

Ah, Coldplay..they are often terrible. Meaningless lyrics set to melancholy music.

May as well post the first part of the verse;

I’m the napalm the bomb the don i’m King Kong
Get rolled on wrapped up and reigned on
I’m so calm through Vietnam ring the alarm
Bring the shaun dawn burn marajauan do what you want
Nigga on and on till the break of what
Get the paper man i’m caking you know i don’t give a f*ck


An embarrassing confession; while i've been listning to the song is it has actually grown on me and now i quite like 50's verse, even though my brain is telling me it is absolute fucking shite.

This is also right up there; Life by Des'ree
I don't wanna see a ghost,
It's the sight I fear most
Rather have a piece of toast.


A song I also kinda like, *sigh*.

From Space Oddity by David Bowie:
"Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do"

I also hate when a song refers to itself as a song, for example, in the song Time by Pink Floyd, it goes "the day is gone, the song is over, thought I had something more to say". Also happens in a song off Lily Allen's appalling new album, where she says something like "I hope you don't think that this is just a song, I mean every word I say..." Annoys me.
THERE ALL IS ACHING
